Dating is already challenging enough, and adding the fact that you’re a non-binary takes it to a whole other level. Genderqueer individuals get a lot of hate and criticism for the way they look, talk, or dress.
Some people can’t seem to open up their minds and understand that even genderqueer people deserve love just as much as a person who conforms to the gender norms.
To help you get into the dating world and survive, here are four things you should know.
Before you step into the dating world, take some time to understand yourself better.
It’s crucial that you know your identity from the start. You also need to know what to look for in a partner. Otherwise, you might waste your time chasing the wrong people. Getting some dating advice can also be very beneficial.
When people start liking someone, they often try to change themselves according to what that person might like. They abandon their identity while trying to impress someone.
That’s not a good thing to do, especially if you are looking for something permanent. You need to be true to who you are and what makes you happy. Never be less than 100 percent of yourself.
Every person has their preferences. But it might be better to keep your options open when you are looking for someone. You should try to look past their outer appearance and see if their core matches yours. After all, the inside is what makes a relationship last.
Unfortunately, there are many people out there who might make fun of you or try to hurt you. They don’t usually have any reason other than the fact that you don’t conform to the gender norms. That’s why you should immediately leave and get to safety if you feel threatened at any point.
